GOOD FENCES - Malawi

Once again you will have to think “out of the box” for these fences in Malawi as many are far away on the land and seen from the boat and I count the boats as being fenced in!  Of course the fish are fenced in by water! These birds below are Reed Cormorants and Hammerkop.



As we passed these men were fishing with very long lines and you will see that better on the video as well as me trying to photograph the fish beneath the water while we were snorkeling.




My daughter, Judith relaxing.



You probably will be able to see the coastline better on the video.

I hope you enjoyed this part of Malawi. I thought it was very beautiful.

I am linking this post with GOOD FENCES.

Thanks for visiting and also many thanks for those who leave comments.

  1. Hi Margaret, thanks for the video it really rounds out your post. Those fish are a pretty blue (or iridescent) colour and, yes, the men have very long lines for fishing... lots of pulling, but they look strong!
    A beautiful place indeed. I should have looked at your older post first, but shall do that now.
    Cheerio!

    I think we visited at least a part of the places you have shown here.

  22. You have me thinking that flying fish are fence-jumpers. A wonderful image, thank you (and this post) for putting it into my head.

  26. I was going to ask you last time if you went snorkeling, too. It must be super fun! I love the patterns the sun is making on the water - so beautiful! The little boat is very cute as well! But it seems the cormorants have commandeered it!
